In last week’s segment, the Garden Guru was giving some gardening advice about how to identify leaf damage and what actually causes it this time of year. Many times, the damage is caused by a variety of insects or disease but weather or environmental damage can also occur – and it looks similar to the damage by insects or disease. From scorching sun and hail to leaf cutter bees, aphids and spider mites, damage to a plant’s leaves can be determined by letting our gardening experts diagnose the problem. Bringing in a sample is best. Listen to Lynn’s tip for more information.

Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
